Gift Tag | Guest Designer Noga Shefer

Hi crafty friends,  It’s Noga here today and I am so excited to guest design for Evelin T Designs!I really enjoyed creating this cute tag 🙂

My tag featuring the super adorable Baby, It’s Cold Outside . This set is just the perfect addition to your stash!

To make this tag I die cut a piece of Bristol smooth cardstock using a tag die.

The  background was created  by blending shaded lilac distress oxide ink with hill stencil. I also splattered some white acrylic paint to make snowflakes.Next I stamped, colored with copics and fussy cut the sweet image.

Then I glued down the image with foam tape and stamped my sentiment at the bottom.

I hope you enjoy the project I created and feel inspired to create!

Have a lovely day,

Noga

Document December

Hello Evelin T Designs Friends! I’m back to share how I am using the pre-stamped images I did in this first post for my actual entry in my December album. I changed out the cards a bit to fit more photos, but still included the smaller designs from the stamps.

Since I used more photos and left white space at the bottom of them, I stamped on them to add some motion and color. For the right side, I added more of the smaller stamps to my smaller card. After adding my journaling, I picked these two cuties to use.

Once you lift up that smaller card, I have a full page underneath. I used this to document me scrapbooking by taking a picture as I was making this while the family was enjoying Christmas music I was streaming through our TV.

I added the mushroom and the singing cuties at the bottom of this. I really love the added stamping to my album like this. I used Pup-Tastic Christmas, Winter Magic, and Be Merry. Happy and safe Holidays to everyone. Hoping you can make time to relax, stamp, and color!

Baby, It’s Cold Outside

Today’s fun winter card features the Baby, It’s Cold Outside stamp set from Evelin T Designs’ latest release. I just love this big illustration of a monster sledding! I haven’t been sledding in ages and the monster’s excitement makes me want to go, except I’m getting old and can’t tolerate the cold much anymore so maybe not. LOL

I started this card by selecting distress ink colours for my image. Then I stamped the images and sentiment with Versafine Onyx Black pigment ink and heat embossed them with clear embossing powder.  I die cut the background from a retired arch die. If you’re looking for something similar, I’ve provided an alternate in the supply links on my blog.

I also stamped tiny snowflakes with Versamark Watermark ink before ink blending the background with three shades of blue distress ink. I watercoloured the image, dried it with my heat tool and fussy cut it. To create the shaker, I added acetate to the front panel and used foam tape to build walls to house the sequins and seed beads.

I love this idea for winter cards in lieu of holiday cards or in addition to Christmas cards. No doubt, this winter will feel extra long and we can all use as much happy mail as possible! I’m tempted to make a bunch of these in different colours.

Please visit my blog post, Instagram feed and YouTube channel for more inspiration!

Thanks so much for stopping by!

Silent Night…

Hello Evelin T Designs friends, Annette Allen here with you today and I am sharing a card that I created using the new Pup-tastic Christmas and Be Merry stamp sets. I did a little masking magic with these sweet images. It is the cutest caroling group ever.

I first stamped all the images and used masking magic so the images look as one stamp set. I kept the masking tape on so I could create this fun background. I first blended Ranger Oxide inks Worn Lipstick and Tumbled glass then added this fun stencil using Cracked Pistachio.

I peeled the masking tape and colored the images with Copic sketch markers. Once it was all colored I splattered a bit of Copic opaque to give the look of snow. Finishing up with stamping the notes and sentiment from the Pup-tastic Christmas stamp set.

I thought I was missing something so I added this fun striped strip of designer paper to the bottom. That completed the look that I was going for.

Well that is all for today.

Thank you for stopping by!

Season’s Greetings

Happy Monday! It’s Amy here with a bit of a caffeinated card design that I designed especially for the Fall | Winter Coffee Lovers Blog Hop. Evelin T Designs is one of the Super Sponsors for this event. Link up a caffeinated design for a chance to win.

My project uses images from the Be Merry set. The images have been stamped on Bristol and colored with Karin brushmarkers. I tend to be a copic girl but love the look of watercoloring.

The sentiment is from the Season’s Greeting set.

The background is a blended Distress Oxide one by Kristina Werner:

Antique Linen | Dried Marigold | Crackling Campfire

If you’re new to ink blending, I highly recommend the Distress Oxides and Bristol paper. Distress Oxides are much more forgiving the the original Distress Inks. By also using the blending brushes and Bristol paper, it makes the color transition a bit more seamless. I could never get the foam applicators to work for me.

I hope you have an amazing week!

Amy

2020 Fall/Winter Coffee Lovers Blog Hop

Happy Friday, friends!

Today we have a special post for you. We are participating in the 2020 Fall/Winter Coffee Lovers Blog Hop and Evelin T Designs is sponsoring two (2) $10 Gift Certificates. One for the Hop and one for the Flash Prize!

For this Hop, I am sharing a card I made with our Cozy Hedgehogs Digital Stamp Kit. This kit contains individual images as well as ready-to-print-and-color images. It is perfect for anyone who wants to build their own scene and also for those who wants to just print-and-color!

To create this card, I used one of the ready-to-print-and-color files. Firstly, I adjusted the printing to 12% opacity and used watercolor cardstock to print this image. I wanted the image to be lightly printed so that I can create no-line coloring effect.

Next, I applied watercolor washes to the whole image to create a background color. To add depth and details to the image, I used Faber-Castell Polychromos colored pencils.

Then, I used Posca paint pens to color the Christmas decorations. It is an acrylic paint pen so the color remains opaque on top of the watercolor. Finally, I applied Stickles to add glitter to the decorations. I like that all I needed to create this card was to print it out and cut it into size for coloring.

Coloring this was a much needed stress-reliever from the Silverado Fire evacuation and well, 2020 as a whole.

Fun News …

This Cozy Hedgehogs Digital Stamp Kit can be yours FREE with purchase.

For purchases above $75, you will receive five (5) Coloring Cards AND the Cozy Hedgehogs Digital Kit. Please add the Digital Kit into your cart and apply coupon code COZY2020 before checking out.

Preparing for Documenting December with Patricia

Hello Evelin T Designs Friends! I hope you have been enjoying the Winter/Christmas release and took advantage of the offers during release! I’m using them in my upcoming December album. Let me show you how I am planning and prepping to use them.

I’m using the Pup-Tastic Christmas, Winter Magic, and Be Merry sets. Like all of Evelin T Designs’ sets, she has some great little images. I’ve used some of them on cards I plan on using in my album. With those little details added, I stamped out a few of the larger images and colored them with Faber-Castel Polychromos Pencils, and fussy cut them out.

So now I have many ways that I can add these images ready to use in my album as I document in December! I knew I had to include the Pup-Tastic Christmas. My daughter started choir at school. Hoping they will do something for the holidays if all goes well!

Thank you so much for stopping by and let us know if you plan to use the new sets for cards or for your documenting!

Winter/Christmas Release | Available Now!

Hello friends! We are super excited to announce that all of the 5 new stamp sets are now available and are shipping. You can find them in the NEW RELEASE section of the shop.

Here’s a re-cap of all the new goodies PLUS, don’t forget that you can add the Cozy Hedgehogs Digital Stamp Kit for FREE with your $75 order (use code COZY2020). You will get the Coloring Cards included for free with your orders above $60 automatically. This promotion is valid from today until November 11th or while stocks lasts.

I created some cards with the sets we debut yesterday.

My first card features hedgehogs from Be Merry. To create this card, I stamped the little tambourine playing hedgehog and the Christmas toadstool directly onto the white cardstock. Then, I stamped the hedgehog holding the music book on a separate piece of cardstock, colored him with colored pencils before fussy-cutting him out.

Next, I colored all the rest of the elements with colored pencils. Using the MISTI, I stamped the music notes and the sentiment ‘Be Merry’ directly onto the cardstock. After that, I added stickles to the Christmas lights around the toadstool. Finally, I used foam tape to pop the last hedgehog onto the card to create dimension.

For this next card featuring Winter Magic, I wanted to create a scene where a couple of critter pals are high up in the sky with the moon. Firstly, I placed all the stamps I wanted to create this scene on a piece of watercolor paper. Then, I stamped them one at a time using small acrylic blocks. Next, I applied masking fluid on all the stamped images to protect the images while I paint. After that, I used a flat brush to paint the night sky after the masking fluid is dried.

Remove the masking fluid after the watercolor is dry. You can use a hairdryer to hasten the drying process. Subsequently, I watercolored the moon, fox and penguin pals and the stars. Finally, I used colored pencils to add depth and dimension to the watercolored images. To complete the card and add sparkles, I used stickles on the stars and clouds.

BLOG HOP & GIVEAWAY details

Peonies with a Touch of Gold

 Hello my fabulous friends!

Kassi here, and I’m back with another guest design project! Today I’m mixing watercolors and foil again, for an elegant look that is SUPER easy to achieve! Let’s take a look!

Today I’m working with the absolutely beautiful With Love, Peonies digi stamp. Isn’t it a stunning floral?!?!

I printed this GORGEOUS peony image onto some Bristol Smooth cardstock using a laser printer. From there, I did some super basic watercoloring.  One of thing about watercolors is that imperfections can add to the overall effect… so don’t overthink it! Just have fun!

Bristol is technically a paper designed to be used with pen and ink, not watercolors, so it can’t handle too much water or overworking the areas. If you are using traditional watercolors, you’ll want to keep that in mind. My printer doesn’t like printing on my nice thick watercolor paper though, so I make do with this.

After everything was completely dry, I ran it through my  laminator with some gold heat reactive foil. The foil sticks to the toner lines, giving a beautiful foiled outline to the flowers. 

One thing I noticed when foiling on Bristol cardstock is that when you have really thin lines, sometimes part of the line will flake off.. I think this is because the toner can’t set as well into the Bristol paper, so sometimes it flakes off a little instead of just adhering the foil… however, I really like the slightly distressed look. It makes it twinkle when it hits the light instead of just flash! So embrace the imperfections!

Thanks for letting me share some watercolored inspiration with you this month! Be sure to check out Evelin T Designs website to see the full line of clear and digital stamps, as well as lots more amazing inspiration! 

hugs!
